Announcement   Influenced by native tribal cultures, as well as sacred geometry. Onanya brings together primal tribal elements with todays comfort and style. On a line of meaningful activating pieces, that empower you. Honoring the cultures that inspire us to create and carry their lineage on our designs.
Onanya came about through the interest in textile design being a spiritual art and a language.

Some of our work and main inspiration is a collaboration between a Shipibo community of the Peruvian Amazon and us. Our clothing designs become the canvas of their magical patterns. Together we bring you a One of a Kind Piece of wearable art. We are honored to work and collaborate with authentic Shipibo embroidery. These sacred geometric patterns are songs, prayers and blessings used to protect the Body & the Spirit!

Slow fashion, the alternative to fast fashion and part of what has been called the "slow movement", advocates for principles similar to the principles of slow food, such as good quality, clean environment, and fairness for both consumers and producers. We at ONANYA are happy to follow these principles. Developing a garment with a cultural and emotional connection is also pertinent to the purpose behind slow fashion: consumers will keep an article of clothing longer than one season if they feel emotionally or culturally connected to the article of clothing.


"Clothing used without consciousness is mere disguise. Holy men and women do not dress in order to appear, but in order to be. Clothes posses a form of life. When they correspond to your essence they give you energy and become your allies"

About

Onanya came about through the interest in textile design being a spiritual art and a language.

I started ONANYA in 2007. Moving to the Big Island of Hawaii, where there's not many jobs in 2002. I decided to learn to sow to make clothes and sell them. With time my designs took off, and I couldn't keep up with the demand. I wanted to make more intricate patterns and prints that I couldn't do on my own. So I went to Bali in 2005 where I met Ayu Tirta and together we found a production house that would help me create my line. This is where we met Yogi and family. We have been working with them for many years. They offer a great space for their workers and the wages are fair. Something that was very important for me to offer as part of my line.
In 2008, I was called to adventure into the Peruvian Amazon, because I was very involved with Shamanism. The medicine brought me to the Shipibo Tribe and their luminous art, and we started to create magic on our clothing. Adding the beautiful designs of the Shipibo Conibo people onto newer more contemporary designs. Observing the need of these tribal communities have, and the displacement they were experiencing because of the lack of work. ONANYA offers a solution to keep their traditions alive and still stay home living their lives. We work with many women, from the village of San Francisco de Yarinacocha. We offer Fair Trade feees for their work. You can feel the love and the magic when you wear one of our pieces.
In 2014, I moved to Peru to learn more about Andean Textiles. This is where we bring the Alpaca weaving and garments from. I help design the pieces, and the Master Weavers do their magic.
All of ONANYA's work is a Vision Seed that starts in me, but without the tribal art that embellishes our pieces it would just be another clothing line. We bring you the REAL DEAL, we make sure the items that have tribal characteristics are made by the true people and their lineage! There is No cultural appropriation here, only Fusion and Community!
Thank you for supporting all the people that ONANYA brings together!
